How Safe is the Air Inside Your Home or Office?

Suffering from allergies, headaches, fatigue, or cold/flu like symptoms? It may actually be indoor air pollution.

Indoor air quality Connecticut

Did you know inside air may be 25-100 times more polluted than outside air? Our inspectors will help pinpoint the source of your unhealthy indoor air.

90% of indoor air quality issues are caused by high levels of VOCs and unhealthy levels of mold spores.

VOCs and other toxic fumes can be found in  paints, solvents, cleansers, carpets, disinfectants, air fresheners, pesticides, nicotine, glue, home furnishings and building materials.

  • Persistent cough
  • Feeling of malaise
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Eye irritation
  • Nose and throat irritation
  • Headaches
  • Loss of coordination

RTK Environmental Group’s Indoor Air Quality testing services check for VOCs (volatile organic compounds), mold, carbon monoxide, radon, PCBs, and common allergens. Our investigators determine the root causes of your air quality problems, and provide a detailed report with recommendations on how to resolve any issues. Once mitigation is completed, we can verify the situation was successfully resolved.

Radon: The Second Leading Cause of Lung Cancer

Radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas, is extremely hazardous to your health. It is an odorless, tasteless and invisible gas produced when uranium naturally decays in soil and water. Because 90 percent of the land in the Northeast and a majority of the Mid-Atlantic is likely to have elevated radon levels, every home should be tested for radon, an important part of our Indoor Air Quality Tests.
